Apple’s iPad Air 2020 was a big improvement over last year’s model, thanks to a nicer design similar to the iPad Pro, great performance and strong battery life. The main problem with it was the $ 599 price tag that crept into the territory of the iPad Pro. You can now buy the 64GB and 256GB models on Amazon at the lowest prices we’ve seen so far, $ 489 and $ 639 respectively – $ 110 compared to regular prices.

In our review of Engadget, we called the iPad Air 2020 “the best tablet for almost everyone”, and even the best tablet of the highest quality. Apple has significantly changed the design with the flat edges used on the iPad Pro, adding a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, a USB-C charging port and a side button with TouchID technology.
With the latest A14 Bionic chip, WiFi 6 technology and a 16-core neural motor, it delivers powerful performance and healthy battery life (10-12 hours). It also supports Apple’s second-generation pen and accessories that basically turn it into a replacement for a laptop, though that will obviously increase the price.
The iPad Pro offers some features not found on the iPad Air, such as an M1 chipset and a 120Hz screen that is slightly brighter (500 nits versus 600). If you’ve already looked at the Air model, take action soon as the sale is only available for today. As a reminder, Amazon had several other offers for Apple products this week, especially Apple AirPods and AirPods Pro wireless headphones – the latter were reduced by 28 percent to 179 USD.
